Description

For courses in multicultural education or multicultural curriculum, and elementary, secondary and K-12 methods courses.

 

 

With its concrete cases, the fourth edition of this casebook again focuses on the wealth of multicultural and diversity issues faced by today's teachers. Its authentic cases offer opportunities for analysis on several levels and are sufficiently complex so as to invite multiple interpretations. They present examples of everyday situations involving gender, ethnicity, race, religion, language, affectional orientation, socioeconomic status, parents, and community...even technology. The cases involve classroom issues that are relevant to all grade levels and all content areas, allowing instructors significant flexibility in theiruse.
